Jewish Home chairman Naftali Bennett, who is currently in the United States alongside Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu where he is explaining Israel’s position on the nuclear agreement with Iran, warned in an interview with Fox News that a nuclear Iran would be dangerous to the entire world.

“The deal that’s being contemplated right now - it’s an unmitigated disaster,” he said. “It’s one of those events in history that, 100 years from now, people will ask ‘what were they thinking?’”

The deal, Bennett said, “creates a path for [Iran] to get a bomb within several years and this is unacceptable.”

“Right now Iran is developing intercontinental missiles,” he warned. “Why are they doing that? If they want to hit Israel they’ve got already Shehab 3 missiles. They don’t need that. They need those missiles to hit New York, to hit London, to hit Paris.”

“If we legalize this criminal path it means that America is going to be at risk. It means that Europe is going to be at risk,” Bennett continued, saying that the world has already seen what radical Islam is doing and, if that is matched with nuclear weapons, “that’s a disaster.”

An acceptable deal, Bennett said, would be one that states that Iran cannot enrich uranium. “If they want nuclear power, they don’t have to enrich uranium. There’s no reason to allow them to do it,” he added.
